Ungstrup (37677) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2006 [The new version] An amber beer with a great head. The aroma is very faint malty. The flavor is malty sweet with hints of smoke and nuts. A fine beer - but not outstanding.

[The original version from 1998 sampled in 2006 - 9.2% ABV] An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of wood and caramel - and so is the flavor, while the mouthfeel is a bit sticky [7/4/7/4/15]

Wholesome dark amber beer with a caramel and lightly hopped aroma. A vineous flavour mixed with caramel producing a refreshing brew.

Ligth amber coloured. Not much head. Has a sweet aroma with notes of chocolate. Flavour as well is vague chocolatish and mildly sweet. Is well balanced and has pleasant bitterness in the end.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2003
Good ale! The flavour has a little fruity character (not unlike cider) with some sweetnees as well (drops). Well balanced by a very pleasantly bitter finish. IMHO slightly inferior to Bishops Finger, however.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2008 Sept 2002 Pasteurised BottleA clean, refreshing brew with a caramel sweetness that is slightly balanced with light hops. [2.7]

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 18, 2002
Medium amber clear with smallish medium lasting yellow head. Swirl glass to get a strong almost artificial ester honey nectar and malt aroma. Medium body with smooth lowly carb mouth filling palate. Loads of character honey, nutty, caramel malt and lighter bitter flavours. Dry but slightly cloying mild sweet, more bitter, finish and aftertaste.

Hoppy aroma, slight, spicy smoky taste an unusual, good flavour. Good texture & strength.

A pleasent enough ale with a soft bitter finish. Subtle aromas and flavours add up to a balanced ejoyable ale.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2002
Strong, syruppy, nutty, sticky and for me, it wasn’t well balamced (alcohol evident), kind of had a nice flavour, but it was just to cloying, worth a try though.

Nut brown. Full bodied, rich, very nutty, complex and well balanced.
